Cardiovascular System Injury

Cardiovascular System Injury

The cardiovascular system, aka the circular system or the vascular system, is a bodily system that permits blood to circulate and transport nutrients (such as amino acids and electrolytes), oxygen, carbon dioxide, hormones, as well as blood cells to and from the cells in the body to provide nourishment and help in fighting diseases and stabilize the temperature of the body. In conjunction with that the cardiovascular system also regulates pH, and maintain homeostasis. A cardiovascular system injury can disrupt many different bodily processes and can result in severe and lifelong health complications.

Trauma to the cardiovascular system is a common cause of death of people of all ages among young men in Maryland. Cardiovascular system injury is classified into penetrating injuries:

Blunt, non-penetrating trauma; and medical injuries to the heart sustained during an invasive cardiovascular procedure, medical device implantation, or cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

Penetrating cardiac injury is due primarily to knife or gunshot injuries, whereas blunt cardiac injury is usually due to automobile or motorcycle accidents or industrial incidents.

Iatrogenic cardiac trauma also may occur from cardiopulmonary resuscitation, endomyocardial biopsy, or the use of intravascular catheters such as the Swan-Ganz catheters.
